They’re intelligent, opinionated and known for inducing fits of
laughter! Producer Sarah Bazzi presents the Arab Women of Comedy, with a Token
Male, just to be fair.
MIKE BATAYEH, the L.A.-based comedian/TV-film actor, was one of
the first Arab Americans to bring Western-style comedy to Arab World audiences.
Known for his biting social commentary and physical comedy, Batayah’s credo is “Laugh
and the world laughs with you. Cry and you’re on your own.”
MO NA, a comedian/educator from Chicago and a veteran world
traveler, says “Funny is everywhere…so let’s use it for good, people!”. She
studied at Chicago’s Second City and has performed at comedy clubs,
universities and random stages throughout the U.S. and Canada.
EMAN is founder/producer of Montreal’s successful
monthly show BOOM (Best of Open Mic). She has appeared in the NY Arab-American
Comedy Festival (2008-2012), Amman Comedy Festival (2009), the Just for Laughs
Festival (2010+2012) and the Ha!ifax Comedy Festival (2012).
